(my wrinkled tank-top and the option I choose. both shocking I realize.)
I know it’s a hectic time of year & none of us really have a moment to spare.
Im grateful that you’ve made time to drop by my neck of the neck & shall show said appreciation by cutting to the chase.
When your life becomes holiday-harried what do you choose: schvitz or sleep?
Sure in a perfect world we’d have time for plenty of both.
Yes Im hoping that come 2011 this perfect world shall become a reality.
Until then, with all the working-shopping-card addressing-partying attending-stress escalation, there appears (at least in my world) to be a need for a choice.
Im known for saying I find Im not markedly more tired if I get up 30 minutes early to exercise, yet I know many of you beg to differ.
And, as much as I erroneously like to believe Im always right, the more I researched the more the choice appeared to be a health-benefit toss-up.
Lemmie break it down.
Too little sleep can cause:
- fatigue (shocking, I realize. We are all about the breaking!news! here at MizFitOnline)
- daytime sleepiness
- lowered productivity
- clumsiness (ooh, perhaps that’s my problem?)
- weight gain
- sugar cravings
- MamaMiz to be less than her normal, patient, benign, sparking self.
The benefits of exercise (even short bouts!) include what most of us already know:
- increased energy
- reduced risk of getting sick/some cancers
- lowered depression
- lessened anxiety
- improved overall sense of well-being
- better sleep
(seriously. I know youre in a hurry so Ill sum it all up for you right here: Yep. Crap-shoot, People. I choose exercise, but there’s plenty of stuff in the PRO-column for selecting slumber as well)
**let the speed round commence**
